Let’s dive deep into our lovely contenders! So, brace yourselves, because the #BlackGirlMagic is intense this week!
1) Katy Perry in Adam Selman
Katy Perry stepped out for Universal Music Group’s 2017 Brit Awards party in a fresh-off-the-runway Fall 2017 rose-embroidered sheer set by designer extraordinaire Adam Selman. We’re fully aware of the popularity behind the pajama trend so to see celebs rock it so effortlessly is a real treat. Ms. Perry also donned wavy platinum blonde locks, red ankle strap sandals and a fiery red lip to complete her sultry look. Hot!
2) Normani Kordei in House of CB
Earlier this week, Normani Kordei flaunted her toned abs for the ‘Gram in a $195 House of CB ‘Hermosa’ lace collar dress with briefs. The songstress chose simple vibes for her sexy slay as she slipped into a pair of classic strappy sandals. I mean, with a body like that, I’d sashay down the nearest hallway as well!
3) Viola Davis in Christian Siriano
Now, among all things that I love about my dark melanin skin, wearing bright colors has to be one of my favorite perks. There’s just something about a chocolate queen in bold hues that speaks to me and Viola Davis is the prime example! For Essence’s Black Women in Hollywood Awards, the How to Get Away with Murder actress shimmered in a custom bright pink gown by Christian Siriano, soft curls and a berry lip. The Queen of the Silver Screen also kept her accessories to a minimum. Take notes because this is how you (elegantly) shut it down!
4) Celine Dion in Schiaparelli
It’s official: celebrity stylist Law Roach is a genius! After swooning over his impeccable work with Zendaya Coleman, he has branched off to collaborate with other A-list stars including the legendary Celine Dion. At a recent Las Vegas appearance for the unveiling of her new bag collection, the Canadian bombshell uplifted a Schiaparelli Spring 2017 Couture ivory heart-embellished short suit and textured red over-the-knee boots. Although this look is flawlessly tailored, it’s also loads of fun and light-hearted. How gorg is she?
5) Jane Fonda in Versace
An ageless Jane Fonda posed for the awaiting cameras at the 2017 Costume Guild Awards in a Versace Fall 2016 Couture gown. The actress/former model’s ‘fit also includes a dramatic single off-the-shoulder accent, satin pastel blue detailing and a chic train. When I first spotted her on my Instagram timeline, all I could think was, “Yes, Jane! You betta werk!”
6) Tracee Ellis Ross in Lethicia Bronstein
Tracee Ellis Ross also made an appearance at Essence’s Black Women in Hollywood Awards last night! The multitalented leading lady captured our hearts in a sheer blush pink Lethicia Bronstein number that boasts an on-trend ruffle collar, a tiered hem and long sleeves. Abstract gold hoop earrings, metallic pumps and a structured clutch completed her eccentric look. Love it!
7) Ashley Madekwe in Johanna Ortiz
Ring My Bell blogger/actress Ashley Madeke was on hand for the Vanity Fair x L’Oreal’s Young Hollywood party in Los Angeles in an multicolored Johanna Ortiz Resort 2017 printed ruffle jumpsuit. Ashley’s style is always clean, fresh and whimsical so this pick was the perfect choice for her night out on the town.
Whew! Tough week, no?
